Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report

  • The product life cycle analysis for night vision devices consists of four significant stages, namely manufacturing, certification & testing, distribution, end-user and recycling. The night vision devices pass through each stage during its life-cycle.
  • In its first stage, the desired night vision device will be created and is simulated in the R&D of either a manufacturer or academic universities/ research institutes, through the fabrication of a prototype. The prototype is subjected to several developing and testing phases before the specifications for commercial product are finalized. On successful completion of the product in the R&D stage, specifications for the final product are dispatched to the manufacturing units. In this stage, basic hardware architecture for night vision device is framed in which the electronic components will be further assembled. The Night Vision Devices before being delegated to certification authorities are extensively tested to reject the defective pieces. The certification authorities perform several qualifying tests as per the standard regulations, post which, they are sent to distributors for supplying the devices to the end-users globally, through a comprehensive network of distribution networks. The life cycle of the devices is highly dependent on the end- users’ behavior and the frequency with which these devices are launched. Once the devices are utilized by end-users, they are directed towards disposing phases where the device is thoroughly inspected to recover any valuable component and material.
